Following his Carb Cycle Solution, you can drop pounds safely and quickly while learning how to 'listen to your body' to optimize your overall health and fitness.

Not only are you encouraged to eat carbs, but he will show you how to use them to amplify your weekly weight loss. By cycling between high-carb and low-carb days, your body will alternate boosting metabolism one day and burning fat the next. You will never feel deprived of the foods you love because you can fine-tune the solution to suit your needs. Powell gives you complete control over your nutrition, plus plenty of opportunities to indulge, and offers many delicious recipes to help you stay on track. If you work it, the Carb Cycle Solution may very well work for you--for the rest of your life.

With detailed exercises and accompanying photographs, as well as guidelines on how to revamp your environment, support system, and more, Powell not only shows you how to lose pounds, but also works with you as a coach and mentor, teaching you how to finally take control of the incredible machine that is your body. His words of encouragement will be there day after day as you build unstoppable momentum, guiding your body toward your ideal weight. Great physical change begins with a psychological one: change your mind, change your body.

Powell’s celebrity status from ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition will likely spur readers seeking their own little miracle as he promises results that are “easy, fast, and fun”; certainly the story of a 630 lb. 26-year-old who lost 401 lbs. in 22 months should convince some doubters. Moreover, his perspective of body fat as “unused” energy and the self as “an athlete-in-training” are as helpful as his visual aids. Included are master grocery lists and directions on how to prep food for three to four days in just 45 minutes. However, Powell’s regimen gets complicated once the alternating exercises are added to the diet mix–and for those who make it this far, Powell then demonstrates both proper and improper workout methods. The bottom line is that Powell’s regimen sounds great as long as he’s around to administer it and dish out daily encouragement. Unless he comes with the book, though, it could be difficult to achieve the desired results. (Dec.)
